Park the car in the garage. this 5 year old immaculately presented and maintained property -not previously been offered for holiday rental- has everything to ensure the perfect family holiday without having to drive anywhere. It is located only 100 metres away from the rivers edge. The golf course and Jetty are located only 150 metres away. The river is a hot spot for swimming, fishing enthusiasts, kayakers and sailing.
This home is light, fresh and airy just how a beach house should feel. It was built in old ocean grove which is the flattest area of Ocean Grove and therefore great for kids to go bike riding, take walks along the rivers edge or even a spot of fishing from the bank or jetty. At low tide, the birdlife on the water is amazing, there are a number of varieties that can be seen from the waters edge and pelicans are regular visitors to the jetty always on the lookout for a free lunch when the boats come in. The convenience/service station is located just on the other side of wallington road, just a 3 minute walk. Next door to the service station is a breakfast hot spot for the locals.
Most of your fun daily activiites such as going to the beach, playground, shops, and even restaurants, such as the bowling club and golf club restaurants are within easy walking distance.
Our Property - Whats on offer
Frolic on the River is a 4 bedroom double storey home. It's set in a quiet street with very little through traffic.
Upstairs we have the main living area which opens up onto the upstairs balcony. The doors open right up onto the balcony so it feels like an extension of the upstairs living area. There is a small table and chairs for your convenience located on the balcony. The balcony has been modified to allow for small children/pets. In the living area there is a huge TV mounted on the wall, and bookshelves that have plenty of books for the young and young at heart. There is also a DVD player and plenty of DVDs available to watch. The controls for the heating/cooling are also located here. The kitchen meals area is a state of the art fully equipped kitchen with a two drawer dishwasher, walk-in pantry and stainless steel appliances, including a coffee maker. The huge master bedroom is also located upstairs which has a walk in robe and plenty of drawers. There is also a high chair and porta cot located in there as well - should they be needed. All linen is included - this includes pillows, towels and sheets.The ensuite upstairs is actually a walk through ensuite which is so convenient should guests choose to use that bathroom. The toilet upstairs is separated and located next door to the ensuite. No need to bring the hairdryer, we have thought of that to. Also note that we have a kids/dog safe door at the top of the stairs so that small children can be kept away from the top of the stair case.
Downstairs there are 3 other bedrooms. The first bedroom has 2 king single beds, which can be rolled together to make up one king bed. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and a fold out couch that will sleep 2 people, also a large TV/DVD. The third bedroom has a queen size bed and sliding door access out into the rear courtyard also a large TV/DVD. It also has another porta cot and high chair. Both the second bedroom and the third are big enough for porta cots or roll out beds if required. Also located downstairs is a full bathroom, including a bath and separate shower, seperate toilet, and full- equipped laundry, including an iron/ironing board, washine and dryer. The laundry also has a sliding door that allows access to a small secure area and clothes line.
The back yard is fully grassed and is secured by a gate which will even keep in the smallest dogs. We do welcome dogs/cats however large spirited dogs are not really that suitable given the size of our yard. Pets can be permitted but only upon application. The court yard which is an extension of the back yard is fully paved and comes equipped with a great bbq and outdoor table and chairs. The garage accommodates two cars and another two cars could be parked on the double driveway.
